Title

Mayday

Description

Mayday is one of William Faulkner's lesser known works, and has been largely ignored by critics and scholars. The Authurian novelette was written in 1926, shortly after Faulkner met and fell in love with Helen Baird. Mayday, along with several poems and his novel Mosquitos, were all dedicated to Baird. This copy was hand-bound, written and illustrated by Faulkner.
